(mbc.net) Tim Kearney (Paul Walker) is a career crook who has one strangely useful attribute: he is a tit-for-tat lookalike of famed drug kingpin Bobby Z.  The real Bobby Z has disappeared however, and now a rival drug lord named Don Huerto (Joaquim de Almeida) is holding a DEA agent for ransom, demanding Bobby in return.  

If Tim decides to take part in the rescue mission the agent's colleague, Tad Grusza (Laurence Fishburne) agrees to arrangefor the prisoner's early release.  Kearney accepts the deal and has just three days to learn Bobby's mannerisms -- or else risk death as an imposter.
